I left Greece when I was 7 months pregnant with Daphne, and I never really managed to get all the photos in my portfolio matted and put together professionally. They have been sitting for over a year in half matted piles. It is a project that takes a lot of focus and concentration, and it is also something that can't be done with kids around. Daphne is not allowed around because she could totally destroy the photos of she decided to touch or rearrange them.
While Jared and Daphne were gone, I set up all my matting supplies and spent hours on end matting my photos.
The good news is that my portfolio has been completely matted and put together. It feels so good to take care of the art treasures that I spent over a year to create!
I even took the time to mat some photos that had been taken of me modeling. Many of the photos mean a lot of me because they document the time I spent in Greece. I was also at my thinnest point just before I got pregnant with Daphne. It reminds me of what to make my way back to as soon as I have this baby in a few weeks (its not too far away).
I also managed to set aside some photos to hang up in the house on display. As soon as I work funds into the budget and get the gumption to drive to IKEA, I can go and get the frames to hang the photos up. it will be nice to have something more than blank walls for a change.
I must say that I am really proud of myself for this.
